I had seen ladybug costumes in the shops for Halloween and wanted to buy one but they were expensive so I decided to get creative. I borrowed the black tutu from a friend. I had the red corset already and I purchased a ladybug set (wings, antanae and wand) in a costume shop. It was only $5.
I then purchased 2 12″ squares of both red and black felt and cut them up into small circles of about the size of the top of a juice carton/milk carton and sewed them onto the corset and a black skirt. I purchased the striped gloves in a costume jewelery shop.
To finish off the ladybug costume I had a red garter belt and black stockings. The skirt went on 1st and the tutu under it to give it lift and then the corset and tada – a unique ladybird outfit that everyone thought I had bought. Compliments all night.
